Begun in 1995, the MSR Workshop brings together members of the entire lumber supply chain, from production and grading to sales and distribution to end users, and offers a unique opportunity for participants to directly network and gain a broader perspective on the MSR market and opportunities for growth. On Friday, April 29, the CM Executive Leadership Summit (sponsored by SBCA) will provide a forum for component manufacturers to join their peers in an open and frank conversation about the future of component manufacturing and the CM's role within the building supply chain.

Fee: $425 for full workshop; $125 for CMs to attend the plant tour and dinner on Thursday and the CM Executive Leadership Summit on Friday
